Convert sefautil.exe to standard shell cmdlets.

Sefautil is a nice tool for configuring call forwarding, delegates, group call pickup, etc. But it's quirky, lacks good reporting and error handling, and just plain difficult if you don't use it often. Having standard cmdlets to perform these tasks would be a blessing.

Lync should add "tel:" on its own.

When adding a new user with EV through the Lync Control Panel or through powershell, you must add

"tel:" in front of the (required) telephone number. Since this requirement is there 100% of time lync should just go ahead and add "tel:" on its own.

Lync Meeting Invite

to be able to include in the invite automatically, the link to join via a web client, in other words, with "?sl=1" at the end of the meeting path. Clients with closed federations who can't join the meeting using their Lync client, could then just click on the Web Client Only link. The comment discussion is also overlapping with the "Web Conference invite customized" suggestion. Vote for his too, or merge these ideas ...more »

Lync Client Default Click-to-Call Number

The Lync 2013 can be set to default to Lync Call with a powershell command ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398300.aspx ), however that is only the initial setting. From that point on Lync defaults to the last number called for a contact. As noted here: http://masteringlync.com/2014/01/27/controlling-click-to-call/ Users mostly make "lync calls", however they might change to someone's cell phone, now ...more »

GUI and PS command to see who is federating with me

When running open federation the only way of checking which organizations that are federating with your organization is to go into your edge server (in that workgroup in that DMZ), open the event viewer and look for Event ID 14601.
